Exhibitor Summit SEMA Show Tom Gattuso

Registration is open for this year's SEMA Show Exhibitor Summit, July 24-25, Las Vegas, West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The valuable event is organized by SEMA Show management for exhibitors of the 2024 SEMA Show, November 5-8, Las Vegas. Registration is available for up to two company representatives who want to take advantage of this complimentary program, and SEMA will provide housing and several meals during the event.

While undoubtedly valuable for first-time exhibitors, the Summit is also geared toward returning and long-time exhibitors of the SEMA Show. If you think you "know it all" about the Show, you'd be surprised by how much relevant business-boosting information is distributed during the program. Just take it from Josepth Ripienski, director of marketing services for Lippert, who attended last year's SEMA Show Exhibitor Summit. He shared the event allowed the company to "hear from all of the experts on what's going on with the Show this year and years into the future. [SEMA Show Vice President of Events] Tom Gattuso is such a great presenter," said Ripienski. "It was great to get out to Las Vegas for the 2023 SEMA Exhibitor Summit. A big thanks to SEMA for putting us up in a hotel for two nights, plus providing meals and a sweet OGIO bag!" 

Indeed, the road to the SEMA Show begins with the Exhibitor Summit, the education-packed program featuring everything a company needs to deliver the best ROI from its SEMA Show experience. 

This year's Summit, now in the Las Vegas Convention Center's West Hall, will feature new-for-2024 information straight from the people responsible for the industry-topping automotive specialty-equipment trade show.

The SEMA Show Exhibitor Summit is the best way to learn how to:

  • Take advantage of SEMA value-added programs.
  • Use proven strategies to attract buyers to your booth.
  • Save money and resources on Show costs, such as material handling, electrical and related Show expenses.
  • Work one-on-one with Show experts to maximize your ROI.
  • Learn to plan appropriately and budget expenses.
  • Explore promotional opportunities through sponsorships and other methods.
